About this blog

In this blog I share with you our struggles on growing and building on concrete and rubble.

A few years back my husband and I bought an Agricultural production cooperative premises where most of the buildings and stables where taken down. Only 2 barns, a lot of foundations, a big concrete area for the manure heap and the concrete driveways throw out the entire property are left.

Beside the wasteland, on the far side of the property there is a beautiful natural pond filled and surrounded with life.

Step by step we are transforming this wasteland to a flourishing piece of land filled with life and joy.

We want to grow, among others, vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers for all of the little helper insects. And of course we love to have animals for fun and for food supply.
